National Student Poets Celebrate Poetry Month Across The United States

Stocks in this article: SCHL

For the most up-to-date information about the National Student Poets' events, please visit the media room.

The National Student Poets Program reflects the national imprimatur of the President's Committee in advancing arts education, links the National Student Poets with audiences and resources in their respective geographic regions through IMLS's community-based network of libraries and museums, and builds upon the Alliance's long-standing work with educators and creative teens through the prestigious Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.  The winners of this year's Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recently been announced, kicking off the selection process for the second class of National Student Poets, who will be introduced in fall 2013. More information on the National Student Poets Program can be found at www.artandwriting.org/NSPP.

The National Student Poets Program is an initiative of the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, in coordination with the Library of Congress and the U.S. Department of Education. Academic awards are provided by the Bernstein Family Foundation. More information on the National Student Poets Program can be found at www.artandwriting.org/NSPP.

The President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH) is an advisory committee to the White House on cultural issues. Its core areas of focus are arts and humanities education, cultural exchange, and community revitalization. First Lady Michelle Obama, like other first ladies before her, serves as honorary chairman of the committee. www.pcah.gov.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is the primary source of federal support for the nation's 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. Through grant making, policy development, and research, we help communities and individuals thrive through broad public access to knowledge, cultural heritage, and lifelong learning. To learn more about IMLS, please visit www.imls.gov.

The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, identifies teenagers with exceptional creative talent and brings their remarkable work to a national audience through the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Founded in 1923, the Awards is the longest-running, most prestigious program of its kind, having fostered the creativity and talent of millions of students through recognition, exhibitions and publications. Over the past five years alone, students have submitted nearly 900,000 pieces of work and over $45 million has been made available in scholarships and awards to top winning participants. www.artandwriting.org.
